      Found the case, but it pertained to tax statutes:

      Gould v Gould, 245 US 151, 153

      "In the interpertation of statutes levying taxes,
      it is the established rule not to extend their
      provisions, by implication, beyond the clear import
      of the language used, or to enlarge their operations
      so as to embrace matters not specifically pointed out.
      In case of doubt they are construed most strongly
      against the government and in favor of the citizen."
